What's your favorite fact about coffee?
There are 1150+ specific flavor compounds found in green and roasted coffee. Which makes me think that when I say coffee tastes 'good' that I am perhaps not giving its miraculous nature due credit.
What's your dream job?
Aside from meeting Peace Coffee fans new and old and sharing our story...I would give it all up to open a rustic rural bakery with outdoor ovens.
What's your favorite pairing with coffee?
The four seasons, and any day of the week ending in 'day'. But I would settle for 3 Baker's Wife chocolate cake donuts and a red wing pottery mug of Peruvian.
If you could have coffee with anyone, living or dead, who'd it be?
Michael Pollan. Peter Singer is a close second.
Where are you to be found when not at Peace Coffee?
In the friendly confines of St. Paul, yes I said it. I live in St. Paul, and I love it.
What's your favorite fashion faux pas to commit?
I almost never wear socks. I don't think that's faux or pas, I'm just anti-socks.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
I would love to visit the southeastern coasts of Ireland, the motherland.
If someone made you into a cartoon character, what would that character's most prominent feature be?
Freckles. Not a lot of cartoon characters with freckles in this world.
What is the best bike ride you’ve ever taken & why?
An epic ride with my Mom on a summer day in the literally breathtaking mountains outside of Frisco, CO.

Summer = Local Natives or Band of Horses.
Autumn = Nick Drake or Elliott Smith.
Winter = The Album Leaf or Bon Iver.
Spring = Broken Social Scene or Phoenix.
